Johnny Cash Behind Prison Walls

1976 • 0h 50m

Johnny Cash, the "Man in Black," is one of the most influential musical figures of the last 50 years. His deep, resonant voice and sparse guitar style have given him an instantly recognizable sound that manages to sit somewhere between folk, rock, and country. He has been awarded ten Grammy Awards and was the youngest-ever inductee into the Country Hall of Fame. His music is as relevant today as it has ever been.

The concert was recorded at the Tennessee State Penitentiary in Nashville in 1976. It is one of only two of his prison concerts that were filmed for broadcast. It features Cash with special guests Linda Ronstadt and Roy Clark performing a selection of their biggest hits, such as "Folsom Prison Blues," "Orange Blossom Special," "A Boy Named Sue," and Ronstadt's version of the Eagles' "Desperado."
